BMC Racing Team Reveals Amstel Gold Race Roster

13. April 2012

The BMC Racing Team announced its roster Friday for the Amstel Gold Race that includes two-time defending race champion Philippe Gilbert and Tour de France champion Cadel Evans.

Cummings Breaks Wrist
Not among the BMC Racing Team's eight riders for Sunday's 47th edition of the race is Steve Cummings, who learned his left wrist was fractured in a crash during a rainy stage of Vuelta al Pais Vasco on April 6. BMC Racing Team Chief Medical Officer Max Testa said the full extent of the breakage is not yet known. "There may be two fractures of different bones," Testa said. "For now, one fracture is confirmed and an additional X-ray is being done to determine how long he is out. We do know he'll start training with a cast on it in the next five days."
